Air Pollution

Haze and poor visibility grounds morning flights into Mae Hong Son

Published

 on 

Poor visibility from local smoke haze and smog has forced Bangkok Airways to cancel flights between Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son until at least this Saturday. Mae Hong Son in the far north-west of Thailand, on the Myanmar border.

The airline says poor visibility is a result of forest fires. It has cancelled at least 10 flights because of the reduced visibility.

Smoke haze has blanketed Thailand’s north, especially popular destinations Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son, for the past month.

Aviation chiefs say Mae Hong Son Airport has continued its operations because poor visibility occurred mainly in the mornings.

“Flights during other hours of the day can still operate as usual,” the airport explained.

Three airlines fly into Mae Hong Son Airport.
